One More?

Yet another Shoulder plane leaves the 'Shop today. This one, destined for the Netherlands, is made from London Plane. I managed to get a group shot before it left - nice, huh?
I do enjoy working with brass - it's soft enough not to cause too much sweat on the brow and polishes up a dream.

The next few planes on the bench are to be made from African Blackwood, an amazing timber. Better get that plane iron sharpened before I get stuck into stock preparation ;)

Looking very nice Phil.

I look forward to the ones in African Blackwood with great interest ;-)
